The classic Hotel Alisios puts you in a great spot, just steps from the beach and only a short walk from Albufeira.
Sea views are part of the deal at this hotel. It occupies a spot on the edge of a small cliff, with a stretch of golden sand directly beneath. You can walk to Albufeira’s cobbled Old Town in less than 10 minutes.
The hotel’s doors open up to elegant interiors. The marble-floored lobby features high-backed chairs placed around vintage rugs. It’s a similar story in the rooms, where fawn-coloured fabrics are paired with dark-wood furniture.

Great hotel and location
We have recently returned from a great weeks holiday at the Hotel Alisios. The hotel was immaculately clean in all areas and the staff were all spotless in pristine white uniforms. I was amazed at the electronic self-cleaning rotating toilet seat in the toilets near the reception, lol. Our room 418 was excellent, with a fabulous balcony view over the terrace and the ocean, this was booked as a partial view. If we were to stay at this hotel again we would ask for this room again. The room although not the biggest of hotel rooms was adequate kept spotless by the cleaners throughout the week. The bathroom was also immaculate with a fabulous shower. The free internet was brilliant, even on the terrace. We always managed to find sun loungers despite the fact the hotel was full. The hotel is in a first class location and the popular old town is as many have said a ten minute walk from the hotel, down the two huge escalators to the town, it's a little steep walking back to the hotel but you do find it easier each day. Nearly all the staff could not do more to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, nothing was too much trouble they were always happy and polite with the exception of one waiter who found it hard to smile once throughout the week, who seemed preoccupied, always in a hurry and did not take time to explain things clearly when asked a question. The main courses I am sorry to say were disappointing and monotonous, lacking in quality, with the same menu throughout the week. However, others might think differently. The barbecue and the buffet night were to us also disappointing in the quality of the food served. I feel they should abandon these nights and keep to the waiter service with a change of menu during the week, it is a four star hotel. Got to say though the desserts were excellent in presentation and taste. The buffet breakfast was all bit chaotic was a free for all with all the food all located at one end of the breakfast room, there was a lot of crowding and a limited choice of food, certainly with the hot food but you can request eggs to be cooked to your liking. The single modern toaster was pretty useless as it took ages to brown the bread and no white sliced bread is available. The coffee is really good once you know how to work the amazing electronic coffee machine. Would we stay here again, the answer would be yes but not for dinner. It is the cleanliness of the hotel and the staff that really make it a great holiday.More
The best ever Christmas holiday at this wonderful Hotel.
Here at the Hotel Alisios my husband and I found a heaven on earth. Since the moment we walked through the doors on Christmas Day and were met by our Host, the beautiful Senora Regina with open arms and the friendliest of welcomes we felt so happy. All the staff are so friendly, courteous and efficient. There is an air of peace and joy all around the Hotel both inside and outside. The loving care and devotion to the open public areas all around the Hotel has been applied to the highest of taste. The rooms are extremely well furnished, spotlessly clean and the comfort is just the best. The views from the bedrooms were like a dream come true. The service in the restaurant is undeniably the best anywhere and the food is exquisitely delicious and extremely well presented. The choice of food caters for every discerning taste. This special Hotel cannot be faulted in any way in my opinion. Thank you so much everyone of you at the Hotel Alisios.More

Beautiful hotel, outstanding service
Returned recently from an 8 day stay at this hotel and could not recommend it highly enough. My husband and I have stayed in other hotels in Albufeira and this has been undoubtedly the best! The location is perfect, just a short stroll to the old town and a few steps up from the beautiful beach (really easy to get a sunbed) The hotel was spotless throughout and the view from the restaurant/bar terrace overlooking the beach was stunning. We ate from the lunch menu several times and from the dinner menu once, the food was very good and reasonably priced for the high level of service. The rooms were excellent although we were very grateful for the chance to upgrade to a sea view room for the last 3 days as we had previously booked a standard room without balcony (last room available) Our second room, 412, on a corner of the hotel, was brilliant with amazing views of the beach and the old town. It was certainly worth the extra supplement but to be fair the basic room was more than adequate, just missed a balcony. From the friendly and efficient check in, the level of service was excellent throughout our stay. All the staff were professional, helpful and very friendly. A special mention must be made to 'Emmanuel' who was especially friendly, full of good humour and often going out of his way to chat to us throughout our stay. Overall we had a fantastic visit and could honestly say this is now one of our favourite hotels. We are already looking at returning in the near future. Highly recommend!!More
Beach Front with Fantastic Roof Deck
Booked and stayed for 3 nights and had a great experience. Highly recommend a ocean view room for the added cost and experience. It was wonderful to wake up to the view each morning. The Rooms have been updated and are fairly good size for European Size. Very clean and as mentioned - great view to the ocean. Rooftop Deck and Restuarant - Deck was fantastic and great views to the water. Convenient for having lunch or dinner, as well as drinks while tanning or relaxing on the deck. The food is very average. The drinks are good :) Breakfast - Lower Restaurant and again, the food is average. Enough options however to appeal to most people and seems to also provide options for German travellers which there were many in our hotel. Towels - Several reviews state you need to pay for beach towels -- this is incorrect. You have to provide a 10 Euro DEPOSIT for towels which is returned to you when you check out. There seems to be theft of towels and robes by tourists at this hotel, as they have several rules around deposits or pick up of robes before last night at hotel. We weren`t bothered to provide a deposit as we received our money back. Beautiful beach and private chairs - right outside the hotel and that`s what we came here for. Exceptional beach, safe and clean and very enjoyable. What a great way to wake up and enjoy life for a few days. Easy to access the old town and the staff are very accommodatign to arrange transportation and tours.More
Great location on the beach
A lovely hotel. The location right on the beach for us was ideal. There are steps directly down to a long gorgeous beach. There are lots of sunbeds on the beach we didn't usr the ones directly outside the hotel we used the ones next to them called the spot. The beds were more comfortable and you have the facilities of the bar and restaurant so easy to get a drink. The beds were 15 euro for the day for 2 beds and an umbrella. The hotel itself could use some modernisation in the general areas. The bar and restaurant has been done and it's beautiful with the most stunning views. Our room was modern and one of the newer ones. It was an ok size for the 2 of us but certainly not big. The bathroom was lovely but no storage to put your stuff. The staff are all lovely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great with nice Nespresso coffee to start your day. A great location generally which is a 15 min stroll into the old town. It is a little hilly going into the hotel and around the area so not great for older people. We did a tour in a tuck tuck which I would highly recommend. I would return if I came back to the area.
